Houston Bound!

We are getting very excited!  Sarah, Deb S. and myself are heading down to Houston to attend the International Quilt Market.  Allan and Amber are staying home to hold down the fort!

One of the quilts that we designed and made for Elizabeth’s Studio, LLC using their new line “Graphic Elegance” will be featured in their booth in addition to Deb’s really funky handbag.

We’ll be doing a demonstration of the technique in New York Beauty Simplified at the American Quilter’s Society booth on Saturday at 12:00 and Sunday at 1:00.

It’s really great to be finally able to meet the people we have been dealing with over the internet face to face.  We also get to see new products.  Speaking of new products, my very dear friend Michele Scott’s new book with AQS arrives this week.

Have you checked out the on line mystery quilt yet?  Head on over to www.quiltviews.com and click on the Block Buffet Mystery.  You still have plenty of time to catch up.  There’s a new clue every week.


A winner!!

Congrats to Deborah R. from Delaware who is the winner of an autographed copy of New York Beauty Simplified! Sarah pulled her name yesterday.

We have had a terrific response to the on line mystery quilt over at www.quiltviews.com. There is even a special discussion group at My Quilt Place. I can’t wait to see everyone’s final project. One of the things I enjoy is when students send me photos of their finished projects. It’s amazing how the “flavor” of the quilt changes just by changing the fabric.

Today I head up to visit the Warwick Valley Quilters Guild in New York to present a New York Beauty Simplified workshop. I’m always excited when I teach this class. There’s a WOW factor at the final step in the process and it’s just great to watch people’s faces.

Maybe in the next day or so, I will start experimenting with some of these buttons on the blog to see what they do!
